MSGCNTR-438: Add Ability to hide specific groups
If the instructor emails the hidden group, the group name displays for the students receiving the message and they can "reply to all", again having the Group Name display in the "To" field.
In order to send as Bcc so students do not see the group name and are not able to "reply to all", the instructor needs to send the message to him/herself and Bcc the group.
In this case, if the student hits "reply to all", it only goes to the instructor and the group name never shows up.
In a site with groups, as the instructor, click on Messages -> Settings
For the "Groups hidden in To field" select a group to hide
Click Save Settings
As the instructor, send a message to the hidden group
As a student in the hidden group, open the message
In the To field, the name of the hidden group is displayed
Click "Reply to All"
In the To field, the hidden group name displays
The message has now been sent to the hidden group
